Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I guess while we're talking about latest purchases, I'm happy to say I just pulled the trigger on some new Mavic Ksyrium Equipe S wheels today!

These, but the sent me they female version which I didn't realize at first. Ahem, they don't cover certain parts well. I had to exchange them for the male version. Now I no longer get strange looks when I stop at the local coffee shop.

I didn't get too bad of a deal on them. I paid $530, which I think is about $20 cheaper than most other places. While it's by no far a steal of a price, $20 is $20.

I just ordered a new jersey from the clymb.com from Giordana leaders jersey. I was looking for a brighter jersey and this one is brighter yellow and white plus it has NO marketing graphics on it. $45 but I had a credit.

If you sign up and buy something I get a credit.

I recently bought a new helmet as well. My helmet from 2007 was too crusty and I figured it was time for a change.

I finally joined the Memphis Hightailers club yesterday, so that I could attend a special event at my favorite LBS just for members.

I'm glad I did as I picked up Bontrager SSR Multisport shoes for 60% off (35 bucks!) and then I won in a drawing for a $20 gift card. With that I bought a wired computer same as I use on my road bike, for my KHS bike so that I can use my Cygolite light without wireless interference. Bontrager Trip 2L computer, normally $35 which they had for 15% off, then my gift card which made it only $12 out of my pocket.

Two new bikes. Couldn't decide between trek madone and cannondale synapse so got them both. Now we'll see which becomes my favored bike.

Isn't the Synapse using a proprietary carbon crank and bottom bracket?

What's on the ultegra racing edition? I noticed that the crankset on mine is actually different from the stock picture.

Was at Wal-mart and found this helmet and found it to be more comfortable, less mushroom like, better padding (sweat control), better vented, and nicer looking (nice matte black with "carbon" highlights) than my current Giro that cost three times as much.

Just used a $5 Amazon gift card from some Linked-In survey I did to order a kit of 48 patches from China. Maybe save some money on new tubes...

Some Shimano Saint MX80 pedals for my FX 7.4. Competitive Cyclist had the best price around at $65 during one of their TDF sales so I grab 'em.

so you basically got something for nothing, and the money saved on tubes buys you more patches...such a deal...

My jersey and gloves came in that my buddy got for me and I bought the shorts, bottles and vest. When it is all on, it looks killer awesome!! Doesn't hurt that Rapha Pro team bibs are the most comfortable I have used. Never been much of a pink kind of guy, but it looks sharp for sure.

I'm not a pink kind of guy, but that is a very nice looking kit, very manly. I love my Rapha classic bibs, the most comfortable I have worn.
